Revenue growth was reported at $25.4 million, up 34% from the second quarter of 2021 and 907% from the same period in 2020.

“During the third quarter, we delivered solid financial performance underscored by sequential top-line growth of 34% and more than a 180-basis-point sequential increase in our gross margins as we continue to gain scale,” stated Ric Fulop, founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “Our core metals business was a key driver of this success, which demonstrates the market enthusiasm for our AM 2.0 technology. With the addition of ExOne, and the Production System P-50 progressing toward initial shipments, we are extremely well-positioned as we head into our second year as a public company to deliver on our long-term commitments to shareholders.”

As well as closing the acquisition of ExOne, North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA, the company acquired Meta Additive, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, UK, and Aidro, Taino, Italy.

The company also tripled manufacturing capacity dedicated to the Production System™ P-50 to accelerate production ramp and meet early demand. The P-50 is expected to ship in the fourth quarter of 2021, with final component procurement and assembly of initial builds underway.
